The Property Council supports the Government’s moves towards greater transparency in the funding arrangements for the Fire Services Levy. We feel that a number of issues flagged in the Report require detailed consultation and further industry advice prior to implementation. We are concerned a number of important reforms have not been included and that the intended increase in charges has the potential to undermine the long term effectiveness of our fire services.
We look forward to working with the Government during the implementation of its reforms.
